This is the first time that Truliant has issued secondary capital. Truliant believes it is the largest single issuance of secondary capital by a credit union, and the first time one has received an investment grade rating. It intends to use the secondary capital to boost and expand loan portfolios, assets and services in target and existing major markets.
“Secondary capital is a valuable tool that allows growing credit unions like Truliant to continue extending quality financial services to member-owners and underserved communities,” said Todd Hall, Truliant’s President and CEO, “It is an effective way to maintain our desired capital buffer without sidelining the needs of our membership.”
Secondary Capital Financial Details
The secondary capital was issued in the form of 10-year unsecured subordinated notes that will mature on November 30, 2031 and will bear interest at a fixed annual rate of 3.625%, payable semi-annually in arrears. Kroll Bond Rating Agency assigned investment grade ratings for Truliant’s senior unsecured debt, subordinated debt, and short-term debt. The outlook for all ratings is stable. Truliant currently has a capital classification of “well capitalized.”
Beginning on November 23, 2026, Truliant may, subject to the receipt of any requisite regulatory approvals, make annual principal payments equal to 20% of the $50 million aggregate principal amount. Truliant may also pre-pay the subordinated notes in whole or in part upon the occurrence of certain other specified events.
